I have had a "wish list" I guess you could say of animals here in the park that I never was able to get pictures of last year. One was a buck deer and I did get that and have posted his picture. Another was a rabbit. I was beginning to think there were none in here until the other day behind the office this one was eating away, and I got to scratch off another success.....
I was thinking to myself on Friday that I had not taken a sunset picture for a long time so I drove on down to the beach about 8:30 to get a good seat. :) Just me and the lake and all of this action was going on......
|"Oh my, I must correct my posture. Whatever would Mother say if she saw me slouching like that!"|
This was my first picture of the sun as it was just beginning to go down. How gorgeous are these sunsets over the water?
|I just love the boats in the pictures that are headed my way.|
Then as I was watching them this boat came into my view and so I thought it would be neat to get him between the trees that are planted on the jetty.
Now the sun is going down and the clouds were beginning to pick up a dark glow. So pretty.
As I was sitting there watching this all happen before my eyes a flock of Canada Geese flew right in front of me and since I had the camera ready for the sun I was able to capture them flying into the cove for the night.
|I jut love the pink color in the clouds. And then when I downloaded this to the computer I got a surprise. See the bottom right of the photo. There stands the Great Blue Heron, getting in the picture again. Love it!!!!!|
And then here they are resting in the cove for the night. Looks like most of them are getting a bedtime snack. But a couple are keeping an eye on me for sure.
And the biggest and best surprise is "someone" else was watching me but I didn't have a clue. Then I saw the water ripple and I almost came unglued. I had been trying to get the beaver for so long with no luck. I just started snapping pictures and I had no idea until I down loaded them that I had this picture....
|Not good quality but hey I was thrilled to see him at all.|
He came out of the water onto the shore! OH my gosh, I was so excited I was shaking. My beaver.... I finally got my beaver picture!
This one is not as clear but you can see his tail better. It was so dark out I still cannot believe how well they turned out. I was making all kinds of noise too and walking towards the geese I still just cannot believe he came out for me to see. You can see his little dam behind him.
I guess I have to stop there because nothing else will top this for me tonight. Well OK maybe Effie would. I bought this new pillow for me to sit on the swing with. My back hurts so bad in the evenings that I need the cushioning. "Someone", not to mention any names, thought I bought this soft, fluffy, bed for her. Come on, how in the world could I not let her remain on it when she looks so cute? !
